Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Shows how changes in work, family structure, women's roles, and other factors have caused people to become increasingly disconnected from family, friends, neighbors, and democratic structures--and how they may reconnect.


Review:

"BOWLING ALONE is a rich, dense, thoughtful, and fascinating book....It is extremely readable...and is packed with information about the social and political habits of twentieth-century Americans."

Alan Ryan, New York Review of Books, 08/10/2000

Review:

"...BOWLING ALONE is an important work, rich in its incidental details as well as its general architecture. In one respect, certainly, the book testifies to the moral seriousness of its author: Putnam's research is itself a fine illustration of civic engagement. Not the least of its achievements is that it teaches by example."

Alexander Star, New Republic, 08/14/2000

Book Description: Simon Schuster Ltd, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 236 x 156 mm. Brand New Book. BOWLING ALONE warns Americans that their stock of social capital , the very fabric of their connections with each other, has been accelerating down. Putnam describes the resulting impoverishment of their lives and communities. Drawing on evidence that includes nearly half a million interviews conducted over a quarter of a century in America, Putnam shows how changes in work, family structure, age, suburban life, television, computers, women s roles and other factors are isolating Americans from each other in a trend whose reflection can clearly be seen in British society. We sign 30 percent fewer petitions than we did ten years ago. Membership in organisations- from the Boy Scouts to political parties and the Church is falling. Ties with friends and relatives are fraying: we re 35 percent less likely to visit our neighbours or have dinner with our families than we were thirty years ago. We watch sport alone instead of with our friends. A century ago, American citizens means of connecting were at a low point after decades of urbanisation, industrialisation and immigration uprooted them from families and friends. That generation demonstrated a capacity for renewal by creating the organisations that pulled Americans together. Putnam shows how we can learn from them and reinvent common enterprises that will make us secure, productive, happy and hopeful. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780743203043
